Phil is signaling the changes when he steps up to the mic and talks into their ear monitors. Bobby used to lead the jam during the GD days, but now it's obviously Phil running the show.

Seriously, you're saying this based on what? Bob's just waving his finger in the air to see which way the wind is blowing is he? And he was the one leading the jams in the Grateful Dead was he? To repeat: you're saying this based on what?

Based on an interview Jerry gave.


Have you been to a Furthur show? I've been to 11 so far. I know what goes on onstage.

Reference for that interview if you will.

No, I have not been to a Furthur show; they don't come to my part of the planet. And just being in the audience a few times doesn't necessarily lend you insight into the onstage dynamic. You actually didn't answer my question. For the sake of argument, and only for the sake of argument, let's say you were right and Phil is bandleader. Now you'd have to assume, wouldn't you, that Bob would know this. So what's he doing? Directing traffic? Swatting flies? Waving to his bank manager?

Maybe he's trying to snatch the lyrics out of the air?

You mean some mischievous stagehand hoisted his autocue into the flies?
